Please understand that I go to restaurants all over the world. When at home, we go out 4-5 nights a week. So, I noticed that Vace is currently rated in the TOP THREE in Bethesda. TOP THREE!! And so, prepared to be WOW'd, when we had an office birthday party, we ordered from Vace. I was NOT WOW'd. Firstly this is not a restaurant. There is nowhere to sit. As you enter you have to squeeze past the dumpster and recycling bin. Great curb appeal. Then, the lady at the register had a mask on,,, presumably due to a cold? While I was waiting I made a big mistake by looking up at the ceiling. Water stains all over the place and the air return is encrusted with about I estimate 3-5 years of accumulated dust and grime. OK, now to the food: pizza,,,, average at best. Plus, remember that it's a carry out, meaning that by the time you get home to eat it, it has already cooled! My basic message as a frequent Trip Advisor reviewer,,, it's okay for a medium to low end carry out deli, but top three in Bethesda, sorry, not a chance!!
